Seasoned and budding stars looking to entertain while honing their craft, are invited to audition for Lone Star College-Kingwood’s next production.
The college is looking to cast students and community members with singing talent and energy for “The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee”, the first drama production of spring 2016. Auditions are Dec. 8 and Dec. 10 from 6-9 p.m. on the Performing Arts Center (PAC) Main Stage.
“We are looking to cast people who have the ability to sing and create wildly imaginative characters,” said Eric Skiles, director and drama professor at LSC-Kingwood.
The production calls for five women and five men to play the young children spellers and the adult roles. Those auditioning for children spellers must have stamina as these roles will be very physically driven. All roles require singing.
“Our auditions are very relaxed-everyone is there to support each other and although some actors are vying for the same role, there is a true sense of camaraderie in our auditions,” Skiles said. We welcome all students and community members to come join us.”
“The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee” focuses on an eclectic group of six mid-pubescents who vie for the spelling championship of a lifetime. While candidly disclosing hilarious and touching stories from their home lives, the tweens spell their way through a series of words hoping to never hear the soul-crushing, pout-inducing, life un-affirming “ding” of the bell that signals a spelling mistake. While six spellers enter, only one will leave…at least the losers get a juice box!
“The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee” will run Feb. 25-27 at 7:30 p.m. and Feb. 27-28 at 2 p.m. on the PAC Main Stage. For more information on the auditions or production, call 281-312-1532.
